3
Introduction
  • Leaders may be called upon to teach others
  • Leaders must be ready to
  • Be in the spotlight
  • Connect with their audience
  • Convey the necessary information and their own
    personalities

4
Lesson Objectives
  • At the end of the lesson, you will be able to
  • Identify the four tenants to know when
    approaching workshop presentation
  • Describe key ways to prepare and control for the
    human element in presentations

5
The Four Tenants
  • The Workshop Content
  • What we will teach
  • The Structure
  • How we will teach it
  • The Wrapping
  • All of the extra things that go into
    presentations
  • The Presenter
  • The ways we as individuals deliver our message

6
Workshop Content
  • Presenters should have received a topic
  • Two questions should be answered
  • What will you tell your audience?
  • Will this be a one-time workshop, or many
    sessions?
  • One-time means you should provide all the
    information the audience will need without
    overloading them
  • Information can be spread throughout multiple
    sessions but not to the point of emptiness
  • Practice to gauge amount of information included

7
Workshop Structure
  • Approach a workshop session as though it is a
    grand journey
  • Start at the beginning and take your audience
    with you
  • Share good information and end at the ending
    point
  • Do not travel too quickly or your audience wont
    be able to keep up
  • Do not travel too slowly or your audience will
    get bored and lost interest
  • Practice to help determine how quickly you can
    transition from point to point during presentation

8
Workshop Packaging
  • 5 Ps - Prior preparation prevents poor
    performance
  • An audience takes away only a poor impression of
    a speaker who is unprepared
  • Themes are a good way to strike interest in your
    presentation
  • Be careful not to overuse the theme
  • Keep in mind audience
  • Who they are, what they do, what is their age
  • Keep in mind the context of your talk
  • Is it a formal, business function or a more
    casual setting

9
The Speaker
  • People tend to remember more about the person
    making the presentation than the presentation
  • A speaker can ensure the memories are positive
  • The speakers voice
  • Use adequate volume if there is no microphone
    Audience members in the rear should be able to
    hear
  • Vary the tone of your voice to avoid monotone and
    boredom
  • The speakers body language

10
The Speaker
  • The speakers body language
  • Make eye contact with the audience and scan the
    room
  • Always smile to signal happiness
  • Gestures should be natural, not forced
  • Stand up tall, look people squarely on, and
    deliver your message

11
Stage Fright or Bad Case of Nerves?
  • Its natural even professionals get a case of
    nerves from time to time
  • Use nerves as a way to channel energy
  • Give yourself the challenge to overcome and make
    your presentation that much better
  • Nerves are more noticeable to you than the
    audience
  • Move on if you make a mistake, and do not draw
    attention to it (most likely, nobody noticed!)

12
Stage Fright or Bad Case of Nerves?
  • Ways to alleviate nerves
  • Practice and prepare
  • Get plenty of sleep the night before
  • Arrive to the location early to avoid being
    rushed to start
  • Take a few minutes before you are introduced to
    just be by yourself
  • Take some deep breaths
  • Have a drink of water
  • Think positively about what youre about to do
  • Smile, and then blow the audience away!

13
Some Final Thoughts
  • Do not read straight from handouts
  • Try to learn names if you are presenting to a
    small group (lt25) as quickly as possible
  • Listen to your audience for feedback, and -
  • Circulate the room as you speak, if possible
  • Let the audience know how your workshop fits in
    with their goals
  • Consider time of day and how long you have for
    your talk
  • Do not lean on the podium
  • Speak to the audience and not the visual aids
  • Do not obstruct view of the visual aids
  • It is better to finish slightly early than to
    overrun

14
Reflection Questions
  • What are the four tenants to remember when
    approaching a workshop?
  • What is something to remember when thinking about
    using a theme?
  • How does a speakers voice affect their message?
  • What does good posture say about a speaker?
  • What can you do to control for the human element
    (your voice, gestures, postures, etc.) when
    presenting a workshop?
